This evening’s S ‘n B had a very special guest – a friend (who happens to be my best friend’s sister) from Southern California joined us. It was a great place to catch up while knitting. We met again at a great local café, Art Coffee. I showed her two shawls I designed using some wool that she gave me on a visit with my parents in California. One shawl I am using wonderfully soft alpaca which has stripes of faggoting and the other is a Faroese Shawl with a gusset. I have made the gusset and also started on one of the side triangles. I brought my finished cabled arm cosies and Maluka Shawlettte (more like a scarf) to show also show her and the other gals.
We had a nice show and tell this evening. One of the gals is nearly finished (just needs to add buttons) a jumper for her granddaughter and started a hooded poncho in matching yarn. One of our newcomers shared a baby sweater she is making a quickie on large needles came with her granddaughter. Her granddaughter made a crochet flower while with us.
These 100% wool, from hand-spun wool, including her own goat’s contribution, socks are nearly finished. I’m waiting to see this summer top when it’s finished.
One of the gals ordered the dessert blintzes (they were filled with chocolate and nuts). She said they were really rich and she decided to take them home! We don’t just each dessert – two gals shared a huge green salad. This was our largest turn out to date! Some of us were surprised the time to leave had come so quickly! Looking to forward to our next S ‘n B get together in a couple of weeks.
